ELFs: Manchester by the Sea
ELFs & Kino Monoplexx:
MANCHESTER BY THE SEA
An uncle is forced to take care of his teenage nephew after the boy's father dies. Dealing with the aftermath of a tragedy turns a once warm and ebullient family man into a solemn, withdrawn, and angry loner in Kenneth Lonergan's bittersweet drama Manchester by the Sea.
Set in the picturesque city of Manchester on Massachusetts' north shore, cinematographer Jody Lee Lipes captures the rugged beauty of this New England town. Beautiful written and directed by Kenneth Lonergan, with a stunning performance from Casey Affleck in particular, this is a beautiful, quiet picture encapsulating trauma, guilt, redemption and familial bonds.
